Felix Rosenqvist earns first career Formula E victory in Berlin ePrix
Felix Rosenqvist is now an FIA Formula E winner.
Rosenqvist earned victory in Round 7 of the Formula E World Championship in the first round of the Berlin ePrix.
“The car was just unreal,” Rosenqvist said after the race. “It was unbelievable.”
After leading around the first half of the race, Lucas di Grassi lost the lead to Rosenqvist after drivers stopped for a car switch.
After that, Rosenqvist never looked back.
Di Grassi was one of three drivers to win the fan boost, along with Sebastien Buemi and Daniel Abt, but the boost wasn’t enough to catch Rosenqvist in the closing laps.
Nick Heidfeld finished third, followed by Jose Maria Lopez, Jean-Eric Vergne, Buemi, Nick Prost, Abt, Sam Bird and Marco Engel to round out the top 10.
Race No. 2 of the Berlin ePrix doubleheader begins with qualifying at 8:30 p.m. ET on FS2, followed by coverage of the second event at 9:30 a.m. ET on FS1.
